boom geobama -- if obama gets re-elected, that has past. and john boehner will have to think about his feature as speaker. if he wants to stand with the tea party or stand with the vast moderate majority of people in this country who believe that there have to be some revenues, and there have to be some cuts, and there have to be entitlement reforms. there's a rational, sane middle road out there. if romney wins, then he will have to deal with the democrats in the senate which he will want to do, and he will have to say to his right wing as he has implicitly over the last three or four weeks that no, guys, we're not going to have this extreme policy. and as for tax rates mattered, i mean, i think we all live through the great depression of the 1990s after bill clinton raised taxes. and the great depression of the 1980s after ronald reagan raised taxes, especially on business, three times. >> we're going to have to see stop -- no, we're going to have stop, take a break. >>> when we come back, we'll talk inevitably about all this, but also going forward what's going to get this econo

supported him, as he said of john birch society, he said, well, i welcome their support. just because they support me, i don't support them necessarily. reagan had the gift of putting over hard provocative policy statements with a sweetness and personal presentation and niceness about him that somehow diffused the hardness of these positions. if he had become president when he first ran in 1976, i think the world would have been a very dangerous place, because this nice guy was saying things and intending to do things to the soviet union, which probably would have brought on real international stress. history came to our rescue and delayed reagan's election until later time when he became more diplomatic. >> we're going to have to take a break. when we come back, we're going to talk with our panel about what this cliffhanger election reminds them of and who the candidates remind them of when we come back. ound my house. mine's just, right over that way. well you can find out exactly where it is using bing elections. it's a good day for politics. which way do you lean politically? cons

john kennedy did not have. every president brings a certain aura to the leadership style, and in any given moment, you say, actually it would be nice if we could put l pull a little bit of that dna from that president and put it in the d nah ass of our current leaders in both the senate and white house. >> howard bake e told me me a great story about lbj and dirksen. he said when he was in an intern in dirksen's office, he heard him yelling into the phone, no, goddamnit, mr. president, you're not getting him. he said stick around, you're going to see something. and half an hour later, the door of dirksen's office flew open and in came two beagle hounds followed by the president of the united states with a bottle of bourbon and he slammed the bottle down on dirksen's desk and said, listen, you sonofaabithch, we're going to get this settled tournament. >> you were not is a supporter of obama during the primaries. you arguing passionately. what do you think about him now historically? >> barack obama, he's done a pretty good job as president, i think. he got a historic health care bill
